Sweetly Sour Happy Hour

Hi everyone! Christen here, ending out our lemon week with a Friday-perfect post: lemony cocktails! One of my favorite blogs (probably my favorite non-wedding blog) is Mrs. Lilien. If you haven’t checked it out, it’s an absolute must. Entertaining, FULL of style, and always written in fun, rhymed verse. It was Mrs. Lilien who inspired me to complete our week with some grown-up fun. Check out her own tribute to lemonade! Anyway, I promised a couple lemony cocktails so here we go (all links take you to the recipes).

First up would probably be my top pick, a French 75 (champagne, lemon, and gin)

A spin on the classic Lemon Drop recipe, check out this Ginger Lemon Martini (gin, lemon, ginger syrup, sugar)

Or for those hosting a big party, try this Lemon Drop Champagne Punch (lemons, sugar, champagne, vodka)

Finally, for some real fun, how awesome are these Lemon Drop Jell-O Shots?

  1. Lemon cocktails are such a good idea for a signature wedding drink. It is perfect to serve all the guests when walking into the reception, especially on a warm summer day. Love it and thanks for the inspiration!
